Changing the face of the earth-engineering geomorphology

Auteurs :
HARBOR, J.
GIARDINO, J.R.

Description :
Construction site management, traditionally dominated by professional engineers, provides an important opportunity for engineers and geomorphologists to work together in minimizing the environmental impacts of land disturbance. In this paper, the A. reviews both the underlying motivation for this field and some of the main techniques used in construction site erosion and sediment control. His focus is on the US context.
